We love hosting Thanksgiving in our home! We were thrilled to have Trevor's Dad and his family join us this year. They haven't been up to our home in 5 years, and it was great to spend sometime with them. They arrived late the night before Thanksgiving...which worked out great because Wednesday is our major cooking day. Most of the prep happens on Wednesday so Thanksgiving can be a touch more relaxing (er..that's the plan anyway).
Ry and Addy making their pies....a requirement for all of my kids each year to make a pie from start to finish. Plus it makes for a LOT of pie. Always a good thing.
Addy helped me set the table.
And she was a great helper in the kitchen on Thanksgiving Day as well. That turkey was amazing!!
Here's the group (missing Trevor and I and Miles)....and it's blurry and that's all I got. Oh well. Our friends Pat & Morad also joined us. Trevor baptized Pat this fall and they have become great friends. We were so happy they were able to join us!
Miles was the only kid at the 'kid table'. And he didn't seem to mind one bit!
The pies were glorious! (Yes one Costco pumpkin pie included).
That weekend Trevor was ordained a high priest because he was called to our Stake High Council. It worked out perfectly for his dad to be her to perform the ordination. His friend Josh and President Shakespeare also joined in. It was a great night!
I'm sad I don't have more pictures, but we really did have a fun time with these guys and appreciate the effort it took to travel here during the holidays. (And yes, I was decorated for Christmas prior to Thanksgiving...it was just too short of a season this year and I wanted to stretch it out as long as possible).
